    Shugoshin biases chromosomes for biorientation through condensin recruitment to the pericentromere

    Kitty F Verzijlbergen et al.
    Shugoshin proteins help to align chromosomes so that copies of the same chromosome attach to microtubules from opposite poles during cell division.

    Sgol2 provides a regulatory platform that coordinates essential cell cycle processes during meiosis I in oocytes

    Ahmed Rattani et al.
    Shugoshin-like protein 2 (Sgol2) is involved in a variety of cell cycle process during the first stage of meiotic division.

    Upper bound on the biological effects of 50/60 Hz magnetic fields mediated by radical pairs

    PJ Hore
    Any effects of environmental 50/60 Hz magnetic fields on human biology due to a radical pair mechanism should be no more dangerous than those incurred by travelling a few kilometres.

    Histone H3G34R mutation causes replication stress, homologous recombination defects and genomic instability in S. pombe

    Rajesh K Yadav et al.
    Mutation of Glycine 34 to Arginine within the N-terminal tail of histone H3 alters post-translational modifications on Lysine 36 and is associated with a delay in replication restart, defective homologous recombination and an increase in genomic instability.

    Probing the catalytic functions of Bub1 kinase using the small molecule inhibitors BAY-320 and BAY-524

    Anna P Baron et al.
    Chemical inhibition of Bub1 shows that the catalytic activity is not required for normal mitotic progression, but it makes chromosome segregation and cell proliferation more sensitive to the effects of the anti-cancer drug Paclitaxel.

    The MAP kinase pathway coordinates crossover designation with disassembly of synaptonemal complex proteins during meiosis

    Saravanapriah Nadarajan et al.
    Coordination between crossover designation and synaptonemal complex disassembly is executed via a conserved MAP kinase pathway and is critical for accurate chromosome segregation during meiosis.

    A compartmentalized signaling network mediates crossover control in meiosis

    Liangyu Zhang et al.
    A regulatory circuit that localizes to the synaptonemal complex, a liquid crystalline compartment between chromosomes, ensures crossing-over while limiting the number of crossovers between homologous chromosomes during meiosis.

    Division of labour between PP2A-B56 isoforms at the centromere and kinetochore

    Giulia Vallardi et al.
    Distinct PP2A-B56 complexes use isoform-selective interactions to localise to either the centromere or kinetochore and control different processes during mitosis.

    BUB-1 promotes amphitelic chromosome biorientation via multiple activities at the kinetochore

    Frances Edwards et al.
    During chromosome segregation, BUB-1 performs multiple roles.

    High levels of histones promote whole-genome-duplications and trigger a Swe1WEE1-dependent phosphorylation of Cdc28CDK1

    Douglas Maya Miles et al.
    Ploidy is stably maintained in Saccharomyces cerevisae by a tight coordination between histone levels and cell cycle events.
